Larry Hughes, drives his first ball using the ParaGolfer

Larry Hughes uses the ParaGolfer, all-terrain wheelchair to drive his first ball down the fairway.

At the University of Maryland Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute, we are proud to offer a comprehensive Adapted Golf Program that gives our patients and community members with disabilities the opportunity to enjoy the game of golf.

The program also provides golfers with a social outlet, a crucial factor in building their self-esteem and confidence.

Philanthropic support is essential to sustaining and growing the Adapted Golf Program. Most recently, philanthropy funded a new ParaGolfer, which is an all-terrain wheelchair that raises the golfer into a standing position and enhances their performance in hitting golf balls as compared to those who are non-disabled.

By making a gift to the Adapted Golf Program, you fund necessary, state-of-the-art equipment, like the ParaGolfer. Philanthropy also supports golf clinics, weekly golf outings, and the Mix and Mingle Golf Tournament in the fall.

Please consider making a contribution today to the Adapted Golf Program. Your gift will make a difference in the lives of our adapted athletes.
